this is the end of 'this'

I've already admitted to hating summer, but as the season gears up for its final stretch why not look back on its many joys so far.

Reading.  The one thing I loved about summers starting in middle school were our summer reading lists.  While I haven't read anything as compelling as Lord of the Flies or The Scarlett Letter or Huckleberry Finn, I have been entranced by a number of books.  Here are links to some of them:
  1. Inside by Alix Ohlin (a short compelling character study with an intense beginning)
  2. The Paris Wife by Paula McLain (the perspective of Ernest Hemingway's first wife)
  3. The Happiness Hypothesis by Jonathan Haidt (a revealing look at the psychology behind happiness)

Seeing a bridge disappearing.


Making more art with Barbie.

Gaining ten pounds and not caring.

Being in a relationship.
